Emily Dickinson - A shady friend -- for Torrid days

A shady friend -- for Torrid days --
Is easier to find --
Than one of higher temperature
For Frigid -- hour of Mind --

The Vane a little to the East --
Scares Muslin souls -- away --
If Broadcloth Hearts are firmer --
Than those of Organdy --

Who is to blame?  The Weaver?
Ah, the bewildering thread!
The Tapestries of Paradise
So notelessly -- are made!
